Spiced Saison - Boulevard Collaboration
Boulevard’s brewmaster Steven Pauwels and Ommegang’s brewmaster Phil Leinhart chose to collaborate on a Saison, a traditional Belgian farmhouse ale. We first brewed two separate batches of beer using our respective house yeasts, and then blended them post-fermentation, allowing both of our yeasts distinctive characteristics to come through.
Brewed with a mixture of pale malt, oats, rye, corn and wheat. Subtly spiced with coriander, lemon and orange peel. Perle was used as a bittering hop, with Safir and Saaz added for aroma. Each of the two batches was fermented with the unique house yeast from our respective breweries. The result is crisp and bready, with bracing hoppiness and a hint of spice lingering in the background. Join us in raising a glass to our new friendship. Cheers!
